Ash Street Project

Ash Street Project, the vision of artists Thomas Orr and Joanna Bloom, encompasses art studios, visiting artists, gallery space, community programs and a clay-based emerging artist mentorship program.  Our site also hosts an on-line gallery shop.

Recap: Summer Session 2016

This slide show of over a dozen images from Summer Session 2016 provides a brief recap of the industrious and celebratory two weeks we spent with our invited artists this summer at the Ash Street Project.  Summer Session allows approximately half a dozen invited artists two weeks of exploring ideas amongst peers, our mentees and the community.  The 2016 session was extremely productive as well as great fun.  Per usual, the mentees took turns as hosts to our guest artists, which at times became a bit outlandish and downright competitive.  The session closed with the annual presentation of the Hostie awards, created by our invited artists and presented to the mentees.

We are so grateful for this summer's artists and all that they brought to the session!  Please refer back to the June Summer Session post on this site for links to our guest artists' websites.

Thank youDirk Staschke, Michelle Liccardo, Jennifer Kenworth, Lisa Conway, Chris Lyon, Brett Binford.  Additional gratitude to our hosts and mentorship participants: Ivan Carmona, Ben Skiba, Aleka Tomlinson, Jordan Pieper
